to the next presidential election. what was a romney loss by 4 would have been a romney loss by 7. i think that is driving part of this. >> following what michael said, the political ramifications. our first read team factors this into the president's overall list of goals, legislation he would like to see passed. let me read this. first read team says if congress passes immigration reform, this discussion about obama's legislative leadership had look like a silly exercise. he will have health care, financial reform, don't ask don't tell repeal, the fiscal cliff deal and immigration trophies on the wall. yet if immigration does not pass, it will be more than fair to note that obama was unable to navigate a divided congress. your reaction to that. >> i think this is certainly very important to the obama legacy in terms of immigration reform being one of his top priorities, if not the top priority for the second term. but he also has guns that was a failure. an upcoming debt debate. there are still quite a few other things that will be on the, on his plans in terms of how his legacy is actua

, the gentleman called in about the radicals. let us not forget it was "occupy wall street" before the election. they were throwing bricks and chant ofcars with ta "viva revolution." let's look at both sides. host: the sun twitter -- -- this on twitter -- steve from savannah, georgia. caller: i am calling in because i am not only outraged at what happened but your first caller, she spoke with a nice british accents telling people how she was so patriotic when she took her oath of office in this country and people she looked around the room and she was the only one who belong here and so forth. basically saying that people who did not look like her did not belong here. -- this isis citizen a british citizen. if any citizen of that country immigrates to britain, people like curt treat them as if they do not belong there. britain colonizes those countries. about howing patriotic -- basically trying to tell people in this country that they should exclude certain people. because she is accepted hear other people do not belong here. i was really offended by her comments because i took an oath in this

is a very thorny problem for harry reid. in pass elections he run cam panes that very much focused on his very pro-gun stance. out in nevada it is a very important issue there. now that this is coming up, and as you pointed out in the your invery we're talking about the biggest changes to gun control legislation in decades or at least 15 years now. so how harry reid comes down on this and how much he really wants to see this bill, see the light of day is still up in the air a little bit. jon: as i understand it, there are only four republican senators who have, who have signified they will vote in favor of this manchin-toomey amendment? >> yeah. and there is even talk of amending the amendment so it might collect a few more republicans but the problem with doing that is, that if you were to do that you wind up very likely losing, losing votes on the other end. people saying that it is getting watered undo too much or that it is too, that the bill is turning too pro-gun and then you still have the same problem that harry reid and joe manchin, pat toomey have now, which is not enough votes
to heal. >> a lot of people think it was the turning point in that first term and helped him get re-elected. >> this a moment for that kind of soaring oratory and president obama no doubt has been working with his speech writers on what exactly is the right message to convey. we heard from jessica yellin, your senior white house correspondent earlier today, he'll be talking not only about the three victims killed in these attacks but also the heroics as we've been covering all week, wolf. there were some incredible stories of bravery. people running from this medical tent into the attack. into the smoke. to help people. and juliette and i were just talking about this. if it weren't for the quick actions of all these first responders the casualty count would have been much, much worse. >> we're seeing similar heroic actions in texas right now. people just rushing to the scene wanting to help. >> i wish i could say it's the same. the challenge in texas, although you do see that -- that sense of wanting to help in texas right now, is when an event happens in the middle of the night, you don't
. the worry that that vocal minority of gun owners would come after them in future elections, and so they caved to the pressure. so all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. >> the amendment is not agreed to. senato along with fourblican moderate democrats ved d an attempt to expand background checks to people who buy guns at gun shows and over the internet. >> criminals do not submit to background checks now. they will not submit to expanded background checks. >> in a station the national rifle association called the legislation misguided. >> order in the senate. >> the defeat was a big blow to the president and his senate allies including democratic senator richard bloom en thaul. >> today was a heartbreaker, probably the saddest day in my senate life. >> gun victims' families who watched the votes in the senate and lobbied hard for the legislation say they're not done yet. carly soto's 27-year-old sister victoria soto, a teacher, was killed. >> it might not be next week or a month after that or months from now but we're not going away. >> it's now widely expected
their re-election and legacies and sort of, you know -- their favorables at home -- we felt this would have done it but apparently not. >> if public opinion doesn't move it, what do you think the other levers are that affect senators' votes on these things and are those things movable? >> yeah, i think just the general outrage that we're seeing today and i think that's not going to go away. i think there's really two things at play. most people, you know, your segment there, they think that this is reasonable. when they think about a background check before buying a gun that is not extreme, it doesn't threaten your second amendment rights, and for most people, it seems like a pretty common sense thing to do. so i think there is some anger over there. but on top of that, it's the general disregard for the will of the people that happened yesterday that is actually sort of rare. most of the issues debated in our public policy sphere are more closely contested. and this really wasn't. there was nothing complicated or difficult about yesterday's vote but yet they couldn't do it. >> americans fo
it or were they afraid of losing re-election? >> you know, i think that there is something in between and that is representing the people of your state. unfortunately in many, many states, the more rural states, some of the gun organizations have made people afraid of any gun legislation as they claim each one will lead to the taking away of your gun. it so happens the background checks would not affect law-abiding gun owners. i believe in the second amendment. i think there is a right to bear arms and i don't think liberals are right when they say it only applies to malicious, and i was saying that before the heller amendment. on the other hand, this bill only affects people who are felons, who are adjudicated mentally ill, who are spousal abusers. if you're a law-abiding gun owner this isn't going to interfere with your rights but some of these gun organizations, the nra in particular, they can't win on the merits of the arguments so they scare people and that's what they've done here. having said that, if you represent one of these rural states they think if you vouch for this it i
. the election results were certified. the winner by a razor thin margin is the hand picked president by late hugo chavez. >>> following the boston bombings, scotland yard is beefing up the already extraordinary security measures in place for margaret thatcher's funeral tomorrow. hundred of military troops will be visible along the procession route through the streets of london. and with so many dignitaries that are expected to attend services including queen elizabeth and former prime minister, scotland yard is fine tuning its behind the scenes security operation as well. >>> all right. when wall street opens this morning. traders will be trying to shack o -- shake off the worst lossesen a year. the economic slowon in china brought on selling. lost 266 points. almost 2%. other may jr. averages were down. the biggest drop for stocks since early november. >> right now we'll take a look at your tuesday weather. stormy from texas to ohio with hail and wind as high as 70 miles per hour. afternoon showers from vermont to pittsburgh. thunderstorms in southern florida. rain in the north west. mounta

in the last election was they can no longer take such an extremist approach to issues of immigration. >> bill: as somebody put it, it will happen because democrats want it and republicans need it. >> that's right. think about the political distance we've traveled in such a short period of time. we've gone from november where the republican presidential candidate said he would veto the dream act right? it would allow young people the opportunity to work toward citizenship. >> bill: where he was talking about self-deportation. >> here we are. you know, eight months later. where we're talking about the possibility of a bipartisan immigration reform bill. so let's just keep the momentum moving. it is really going to be important that people be engaged this issue. >> bill: is there the same willingness to cooperate and maybe hammer out a compromise agreement on immigration reform in the house as we've seen in the senate? >> well, interestingly, there is a bipartisan group in the house that has also been negotiating immigration reform. that being said, in the house you also have a much stronger res
the last election, wall street ceos go to washington and have a meeting with the president. they come back and they would whisper, he doesn't get us, he doesn't like us, this is miserable, this is awful. has anything changed meaningfully in terms of the relationship and the way you think the president and wall street are approaching each other? >> i'll speak for our side. i can't speak for the president of the united states. but i would say this last meeting we had with the president a few days ago was constructive. the members of the financial service this morning made it very clear that we want to play a role in 3406g the economy forward and having a set of conditions in our capital market that would add to lending. and putting people back to work. >> how about in the way he's approaching it, meaning people would come back and say, andrew, it's lip service is. very happy to walk into the white house, but great, a big nothing. >> i would say there has been a lot more outreach on the part of this administration towards the business community in general and the financial sector. and we've b
, but you've heard some gop elected officials, they would like to see tsarnaev tried as one. so your thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the govern
